To Do List

Piecing: working on the connections quilt from back in February.





















Raw edge applique: I'm thinking Santa's workshop.





















Binding: Polka dots maybe?














Find a table for this one.





















Quilt testing service: Will work for Scooby snacks.

I'm in love with your doggy.

And your quilts look great too :)

No wonder Santa's so jolly, living in a village like that. Maybe this Christmas he'll bring you a table for that runner.

And definitely a polka dot binding!

Marie' said...

I can't get enough of your houses. They are so cute!!

Exuberant Color said...

Your style of applique is so whimsical. It looks like you are having a lot of fun. Polka dot binding sounds good.

Kate said...

Love the houses - you can't go wrong with polks dots!

One Shabby Chick said...

Sarah said...

i'm sure you wouldn't get as much done without your helper! and as for polka dot binding? ALWAYS! atleast in my book :^ )

I had a chocolate lab. His name was Buddy. We rescued him from an unfortunate life when he was just over a year. He was my special friend. My first dog as an adult. I was a single girl and he was everything to me. We lost him when he was 11 to cancer. Now we are in the midst of watching his 'brother' grow old... I miss him. (Your quilt tester is a chocolate lab, yes?)

Tina said...

looks like you've got lots of fun things to work on!

Karen said...

I love a-l-l of your little houses...they're all sooooo charming;)

Madge said...

KateKwiltz said...

Yay for dots!
Your houses are TOO cute! I'd live there! With your dog!

ellen said...

Oh, look at that chocolate colored dog. How sweet and how wonderful to have him in your life. Love the top blocks..looks like another city with little inroads to me, where people can say, "Hi, how ya doing? May I borrow a cup of sugar? Do you have a stick of butter?"

I can't believe that your profile says you're a beginning quilter! I think you're kidding us. What great designs! Santa's village is so adorable! And the little houses are pretty darn cute too! Wow!

MightyMom said...

he's cute! funny thing my cat will insist on laying in the middle of whatever quilt I'm working on....but once it's finished...she doesn't have much to do with it at all.

HomespunMary said...

Oooohhhh, the connections quilt will be absolutely stunning! I'm hoping it is #1 on your to do list - I can't wait to see the finished result!

Beth said...

Love Santa's Village. Could be a cute way of doing an advent calendar with the addition of pockets. HMMM...

mamaspark said...

I love your raw edge stuff. Santa's workshop is too cute! Where do you find such cute fabric??

Catherine said...

Love the little houses!! And polka dot binding sounds super!

Regi said...

Can your quilt tester come visit my sock eater (a 1.5 yr old cairn terrier with an unhealthy obession with socks)? Maybe Jasper can learn a few things and be a quilt tester too. LOL

I love the projects.. cant wait to see how they turn out and polka dots sound wonderful.

audreypawdrey said...

henny said...

Aahh...Santa!! make me think Cristmast is coming soon in 2 months. Love your projects!

Since you're an expert in quilting, would you please visit my blog and make a comment on my first project. I'm not sure to the colors I had chosen (I'm pretty confused now to choose the fabric's color for the connection between blog (sashing?), maybe you could (please..) give a comment on it. Thanks.

Simply This and That said...

Was going to read through your comments, but my heck there's a lot. I vote for the floral on the house roof for the binding. ;o) The Santa's workshop is so DANG CUTE! I echo Madge; "can I be you" ;o) Your profile say's you're a beginning quilter?! O.K. time to change that one. I have a long dining room table. Just in case you wanted to know. LOL. ooxx`jod

Meagan said...

I am truly digging a) the top red and white Denise Schmidt-esq quilt top, and b) your dog. Both look fun to snuggle up with :)
